Norway’s Espen Jorstad won the World Series of Poker Main Event for $10 million in earnings at the Bally’s Event Center in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Jorstad outlasted Adrian Attenborough and Michael Duek at the final table.
Attenborough called Jorstad in the heads-up, setting Jorstad up for a dramatic victory once he revealed his winning hand – a full house.
Attenborough took home $6 million for second place while Duek won $4 million in earnings by finishing third.
Espen’s victory is the fourth consecutive win by an international player, but first by a Norwegian.
Following the win, Jorstad immediately called his mom.
“It was a very emotional call,” Jorstad said. “She could barely speak. She is my biggest fan, so to be able to share that moment with her was very special.”
